News, but not the serious kind
Sorting through Gaddafi’s knick-knacks…
Guys, listen up! We’ve captured some sort of depot and bunker that belonged to Gaddafi!
Uh, sure, Boss, but there’s lots of strange stuff. What’s this gigantic tube thing here on the dirt?
That’s probably where he keeps his good carpets, all rolled up, Lamar. Just pry her open and have a look-see.
Well, okay. And look at all these big wooden shelves and cases. Any idea what that stuff is?
I suspect it’s Gaddafi’s famous knick-knack collection. You know, Hummel figurines, snow globes and what-not.You can probably just torch most of it.
I’m guessing it’s lawn ornaments and stuff. If you’re not sure, that’s what power tools are for!
You got it, Boss. We’ll get started immediately.
Nah, take a little break first, Lamar. Give me, oh, a 30-minute head start before you begin. Life isn’t just about work, you know…
